Apple has released a pair of firmware updates addressing issues with charging MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops from 2007 and 2008. MacBook Pro SMC Firmware Update 1.4 and MacBook SMC Firmware Update 1.4 enable those early laptops to charge successfully using newer 60 watt and 85 watt MagSafe adapters. Apple advises that your computer's fans will run loudly during the installation of the firmware update, but that they'll resume normal behavior when the installation completes. To install the update, your laptop must either be plugged in, or the battery must have a minimum of a 25 percent charge. The firmware updates require Mac OS X 10.5.8 or 10.6.4 to install, though you can start up from a disk containing one of those operating system versions, install the update, and then reboot into an older version of Mac OS X if necessary.

Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores
If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.
